Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while


When I saw this dress at H&M over a month ago, I fell head over heels in lust over it. I tried it on, and it fit like a dream. However, I couldn't think of a single occasion within the next few months that I would be able to wear it to. After putting it down and coming back to it three times (I'm pretty sure I looked like a lunatic rushing back to it every single time), I bit the bullet and bought it...

.. and a few weeks later, I found out that a relative was getting married! Lucky me, I already had the perfect dress, :).

wow such a beautiful dress on you - very elegant and love how you wore your hair :)

Edwina said...

You look beautiful!! :) I find that it's always nice to have a small collection of nice dresses cause u never know when u'll need one! And usually when u need one, u can't find any :(

Stephanie said...

LOVE it! I also love your hair ring, very chic =)

Jessy said...

I love it! So glad you picked this dress up!! Let's hope you have another occasion for it ; )

Elle said...

you know I love this dress but can I just say again how GORGEOUS you look in it? Makes me want to whistle (even though I don't know how)

Quick question though, is this color too "close" to bridal colors? I have a similar style dress in this shade and I was told I shouldn't wear it to a wedding. But I guess a traditional Asian wedding wouldn't be affected by it.

Joanna said...

No one really commented on the colour at the wedding.. It photographs like a cream/white, but it's actually a very pale pink!

Joanna said...

Yes! I'm dying for some sort of event to happen in the next six months that would require me pulling this dress out again, haha.

Joanna said...

Thanks! I've been wearing it as often as I can.

Joanna said...

I KNOW! That always happens. You find one when you're not looking, but the moment you desperately need one, a great dress is nowhere in sight.

Joanna said...

Thank you!

You look suuuuuuuuper gorgeous!!!!!! Good thing you picked it up. But I know how you feel about buying dresses! I gave up a lot of potential ones in the past only because I can never find an occasion to wear it ):

I always buy things and then realize I don't have an occasion to wear them. Glad you finally get to wear your dress - it looks perfect on you! Love that hair ring too... if I wore my hair up (which I almost never do), I'd totally want that.

xo, alison*elle

is the hair ring still available for purchase? i`ve been trying to hunt one down in chicago!!

Joanna said...

It should be! I bought it a few days before this post, but I did have to go out of my way to find it.
